My haphazard measurements seem to be working. The body increases on my sweater look pretty good so far. I've got about seven or eight inches of body left to go. Then all I have to do are cuffs, neck edging, and some sewing in, and poof! Sweater!
On the not so fun side of things (as if the sewing-in wasn't not so fun enough) there's a knit-and-crochet fest in town this weekend, and as none of my friends here knit, and I have no car, I shall not be going, barring a miracle. Or this could be good, as it means I won't spend money I don't have on yarn I technically don't need. Right. I shall hold on to that thought.
